The KDE Linux desktop is easily localisable and has a very mature localisation project.
These are the priorities as suggested by the SkuleLinux project.
There is no priority within each of these groups

Of course you will probably want to move some applications found in the kdeextragear modules up. Or translate them when requested. Suggested candidates for bumping up include: amaroK, kbabel, superkaramba, Scribus, Kopete, Quanta+, Kaffeine, Juk, KDevelop, digiKam, kdebluetooth, kontact and kimdaba
FIXME update for SVN
If you have made changes or wish to install the latest translations for your language from CVS do the following after checking out the kde-i18n module from CVS.
$ cd kde-i18n $ echo XX > inst-apps # Where XX is your language's ISO code $ make -f Makefile.cvs $ ./configure # or ./configure --prefix=/usr if you do not want files installed is /usr/local $ make $ su -c "make install"
You can update all translations manually instead of waiting for KDE’s automatic update bot called scripty.
$ cd kde-i18n $ cvs up templates $ VERBOSE=yes make -f Makefile.am.in merge
If you specify your language in a file called “inst-apps” then it will probably only update your language, which is a good thing. Have not checked this though.
FIXME fix for SVN
Always check the PO files by running:
$ cd kde-i18n $ check_po_files xx
Where xx is your language code. Also running msgfmt in check mode
$ msgfmt --check -o /dev/null some-file.po
You now need to add the following to your kdeglobals in order to use the
F12 accelerator check feature:
